Synopsis

No one wants to think about getting older. It's true. At any age, when things are moving along normally day to day and everyone seems fit and well, there seems no reason to think about future problems that your friends and relatives might (and probably will) come across as they age. In fact, it might even seem a little morbid to think such thoughts, or possibly even tempting fate?



Yet there will come a time when you must raise these issues and, ideally, this should be before any problems arise. The Essential Family Guide to Caring for Older People is the ultimate source of information and help for families with care responsibilities. Deborah Stone draws on her extensive experience working in elder care to offer practical advice on every aspect of the field indepth.



Topics range from how to get help immediately, legal information, care funding options, a guide to useful technology and advice on the main physical and mental health issues that affect older people. Plus guidance is given on dealing with social services and ensuring you choose the right care for your situations. Crucially, the book also offers help on how to cope as a carer with practical advice on juggling family, work and your caring responsibilities while looking after yourself.

Deborah Stone is a leading expert in the field of elder care. Through her website, www.maturethinking.co.uk she provides information and advice for families caring for older people, as well as advising companies on the effective development of products and services for older people. Deborah hosts regular seminars and clinics for company staff juggling work, family life and care responsibilities. She appears regularly on TV and radio and contributes to many national newspapers. Her debut novel, What's Left Unsaid was published in 2018.

Customer Reviews

As a member of Love Books Group on Facebook I was given the opportunity to read and review this book. I was interested in this due to having been a full time carer to my mother and then having to deal with her passing. I did it all without much idea what to do next and I got through it. Now I have read this book I wish so much that I had something like this a few years ago as it would have made dealing with the practical side much easier. Following on from my mothers passing I was soon diagnosed with a brain tumour which is located deep within my brain and therefore I am learning to live with it knowing that any biopsy or treatment would do more damage than help me on my journey. This book is a godsend when I am therefore looking at my future options. Okay, enough about me and why I wanted to read it... on to the book itself! I found the book to be very well researched giving an extensive thorough guide full of practical ideas and pointers. I don't think there is any other book out there that contains as much relevant information on this subject. It is clear that everything in this book has been fully researched and there are even website suggestions for further information. As someone who is now living alone I found many on the top tips very helpful for me on a day-to-day basis and not just older people. I wish I could share this book with everyone - it is helpful for anyone facing ill health of themselves, their friends and families. Please go buy a copy - you will find so much useful information in this book.
